get-orig-source, maybe?
I have this somewhere (for another project):
	rm -rf get-orig-source || true
	mkdir get-orig-source
	uscan --no-symlink --download-current-version --destdir get-orig-source
	@set -x;cd get-orig-source;a=$$(ls *.tar.gz);tar xzf $$a;rm -f $$a;rm
-f $$a;a=$$(basename $$a .tar.gz);rm $$a/Documentation/TeX/cycle.ps;tar
cjf ../../$${a%-*}_$${a##*-}+dfsg.orig.tar.bz2 $$a
	rm -rf get-orig-source || true
